As a marketing agency, Brilliant Media Strategies needs to be able to effectively present our ideas and concepts — both to our clients and staff – in a very visual and attractive fashion. We worked with Lynn Barrett and her team at DIRTT to put together a working center for our creative department that included a television and writeable surfaces so they can participate in online learning seminars, and brainstorm ideas together. We also had Lynn develop a system for our conference room that included a television to allow us to showcase our work on a big screen for clients, and host brainstorming meetings with our account team. We have been able to facilitate effective focus groups in this space, because of the DIRTT walls and system Lynn’s team put together for us. They were very strategic in identifying our needs and the potential uses for the space, and helping determine precisely which design would be of highest value to our firm. We greatly appreciate their assistance and their ability to bring exactly what we needed to our space.Debbie M., Brilliant Media Strategies, Customer
I have recently worked with Lynn and DIRTT on a large scale corporate project and it was a huge success. Reviewing schematics on the ICE software helped to worked out many design issues and minimized changes in the field. Production time and installation went very smoothly and even ordering a few last minute pieces was no problem for her and the DIRTT team. I would highly recommend Lynn and DIRTT, the product is superior to other modular wall systems on the market and the customer service is amazing. My client and I are very pleased with the outcome of our project.Natasha S., RIM Design, Customer
